Woman held after allegedly using counterfeit cash

Advertiser Staff

A 29-year-old Waipi'o woman was arrested yesterday morning after she allegedly tried to use counterfeit U.S. currency to make a purchase at a gas station on Kamehameha Highway in Kane'ohe.

Police were called to the station about 3 a.m. and were told by an employee that the customer tried to buy merchandise with what appeared to be counterfeit bills.

The employee handed the suspect cash over to police, who arrested the woman on suspicion of first-degree forgery and three criminal contempt of court warrants stemming from other unrelated incidents.
